Books For Our Classroom Library

My students need high-interest books to read everyday!

My Students

My students love to read; however, my classroom library hardly has any books! Please help fund high-interest, engaging books for my students so they can continue being the best readers they can.

Everyday during Reader's Workshop, students read independently, read with their partners, and share their thoughts about their books.

They are amazing and really growing as readers. Each week students get to "shop" for books in our classroom library to read in class and take home to enjoy. They get so excited when shopping for books, much like how you would when entering a book store or library. In addition, our school is a Title I, hard-to-staff, and high-trauma school. We have a diverse student population of African American, Latino, and Asian/Pacific Islander heritages. Over 60% of the students attending our school qualify for free or reduced price lunch.

My Project

I am asking for high-interest books so that my classroom library will be filled with books to keep students engaged and motivated - especially for my struggling readers. As students move up reading levels, I need to ensure they continue to have engaging texts to choose and read. I am specifically requesting fiction books at levels that are below grade level to support my struggling readers.

This project will give my students quality, high-interest books at their own reading levels.

They will be engaged because they will want to read these books, and most importantly, they will build a positive identity for themselves as readers!
